Hello Crafters, Bonjour!
Hope you had a fabulous weekend. It went by so fast, I didn’t get to tackle everything on my to do list. I still have lots of baking to do. When I’m in the kitchen, one of by favorite things to do is bake. One of my tradition is to bake my grandmother’s donut recipe with the delicious pink icing. I also have a new favorite cookie recipe that I love to make. They are called the Silo Cookies from Joanna Gaines Magnolia Table Volume 2. If you love cookies, you might want to try tease out.
Day 6 of Kim’s Countdown to Christmas:
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups peanut butter chips
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Reduce the speed to medium-low and add the eggs one at a time, beating until blended after each addition. Add the vanilla and beat until well incorporated.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add the flour mixture to the mixer and beat until incorporated. Reduce the speed to low, add the oats, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and walnuts and beat until incorporated, 15 to 20 seconds.
- Using a 2 ounce cookie scoop, scoop the dough onto one of the prepared baking sheets, placing the scoops side by side. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
- Baking in batches, and leaving the dough balls in the refrigerator until needed, set the dough balls 3 inches apart on the second prepared baking sheet and bake until browned, 13 to 15 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
- Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

I recently made these cookies for my husband’s co workers and they were a hit!
Today I wanted to share simple cards we made a couple weeks ago at my stamp a stack.
What is a stamp a stack? It’s a get together where we create multiple cards that are all different. The design is available as a reference and everything is precut. You simply need to assemble the cards. I’m having another Stamp A Stack Card Class next week. This is the perfect opportunity to come create cards for the holidays.
Below are cards from previous Stamp a Stack Card Get Together:
